Episode 016: How To Take Action To Create A Life You Love

On today’s episode, Glenda Russell discusses how the life you want is waiting for you to create it.

It takes more than desire to create a life you love, it requires ACTION.

Glenda shares how this process will not be easy and how the ride won’t always be perfect, but once you’ve created a life you love, you will without a doubt know your hard imperfect work was worth it.

Glenda was laid off of her job not once, but twice and she lost both of her parents within the span of a few years. But if that wasn’t enough, her husband then lost his job! Nevertheless, Glenda wouldn’t let her circumstances hold her in hostage in pain, grief, depression, and living a less than ideal life. Instead, Glenda chose to be happy and shares how she overcame these hardships with us in episode 016.

Tune in to this episode to learn about the power of positivity and how action can lead you to living a life you love.

"What is a niche & how do I pick one?" The first decision you need to make in your business

What is a niche and how do I pronounce it?

Some call it a “Neee-sh”. Some call it a “Ni-t-ch”. Regardless of the way you pronounce the word, this is why it’s important to find your own.

How To Be The Voice Of Your People

If you’re someone who craves to be a voice of the people, a change-maker, or a thought leader then I’m sure you have a TON of valuable knowledge you’re itching to give away. I personally know how frustrating it can be to have gone through piles of research and created mountains of content for an audience that basically consists of your mom and your best friend from college who will support you through anything… Can you relate?

Your problem is that you have ALL the knowledge and NONE of the audience.

How To Be A Badass Entrepreneur…Even With Anxiety

How To Be A Badass Entrepreneur…Even With Anxiety

If someone told me 5 years ago that I would have a successful and thriving fully booked self-pay therapeutic private practice, a private practice coaching business, a digital course, a blog, a work schedule conducive to my needs, and financial security I would have actually laughed out loud, rolled my eyes, and likely questioned that person’s sanity. 

See, 5 years ago I was in a very different place in my life.

I was working long hours and unpaid overtime at an agency where I made little income and left most work days crying in my car because of how stressed out I was. I felt as though I had no time to do anything I needed or wanted to do because by the time I got home from work, I was so exhausted and burnt out and the anxiety I had thinking about what the next day would bring left me feeling emotionally paralyzed. I was not taking care of myself emotionally, spiritually, mentally, or physically and I was really not the most pleasant person to be around because I was stressed out ALL OF THE TIME! 

I have suffered from anxiety my entire life and for a really long time, I let my anxiety control me and I let my anxiety dictate my happiness.

It wasn't until a few years ago that I finally decided I NEEDED to make a change in my professional life as my anxiety and stress levels were so high, it was beginning to impact all aspects of my life. That is when I decided to follow my dream of opening up my very own private practice.
